6 APR 2011 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leader in enterprise batch job scheduling and workload automation software, has introduced a System i Agent for JAMS. With the System i Agent, organizations now have JAMS managing and monitoring their System i (formerly known as AS/400) jobs and processes alongside the jobs running on other platforms and applications.

The centralized JAMS Scheduler will also resolve dependencies that exist between processes running on the System i server and other platforms like Windows, Linux, and UNIX. Using JAMS workflows, users view a real-time diagram of the jobs running, the dependencies that exist between the jobs, and any action items that may be executed based upon the results. From the JAMS GUI, users gain instant access to the System i batch log files to view and report on the entire batch run.

“Our clients have been asking for System i support so we delivered,” states Rick Smith of MVP. “We tested the System i Agent in more than a dozen existing client installations and the feedback was extremely positive. Our users love the fact that we’ve added tremendous power to JAMS, and yet the JAMS GUI remains extremely easy to navigate and manage.”

The new System i Agent is available immediately and can be downloaded at
